About Mindfulness 
Mindfulness retreat

Research has clearly shown that mindfulness exercises can improve how we focus, think, feel, and act in the moment, as well as support our longer-term well-being, attitudes, and relationships promoting relaxation and inner peace.

By cultivating present-moment awareness and non-judgmental observation of thoughts and emotions, mindfulness helps us develop skills for stress reduction, emotional balance, and improved overall functioning. It fosters a deeper connection with oneself and others, promotes positive mental states, and supports a healthier and more fulfilling life.

 

Regular mindfulness practice can lead to transformative changes in how we perceive and engage with the world around us, promoting greater peace and contentment.

As we cultivate presence in yoga and meditation, we build up our capacity to enjoy life to its fullest

The Venue

Suryalila

Suryalila is a little piece of heaven on earth. Nestled in a large open valley at the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema, about an hour from Seville, this majestic mountain range can be seen looming large on the horizon behind Suryalila. A striking part of the natural beauty of the property is the breathtaking vista extending in all directions: rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes. The sense of vastness and expansiveness is very uplifting.

The retreat sits on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with over 350 olive trees. Suryalila is a beautiful old renovated olive farm consisting of eight houses that form the cortijo. In typical Spanish style, there are two inner courtyards, one of which blooms with orange and lemon trees.

It is home of Danyadara, a permaculture farm with serves the Suryalila kitchen with loads of organic vegetables and fruits. 

Suryalila has three Yoga halls.

+ The Om Dome is the most impressive yoga hall in Europe

+ The beautiful Ganesha Yoga Shala 

+ The Eco building Moon Shala

Suryalila also has a beautiful salt water pool and an eco- sauna.

With breathtaking views of the countryside and a Yoga dome that overlooks the rolling hills, this is the ultimate place to enjoy some peace, tranquility and fully recharge!

Meet Your Host

I completed two different 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and the advanced 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training. I'm fully registered and certified by Yoga Alliance as RYT-500.  ​On top of that, I'm a retreat addict! Understanding the importance of looking after my mental health and general well-being, over the past years, I have been attending retreats at least twice a year. There is something very special about sharing an experience with like-minded strangers and finding back your inner strength and balance.
 

A key factor I have learned is that a smaller group makes for a better experience, so spots are limited! My mission in this retreat is to create the kind of retreats that I am myself looking for. A sanctuary where, for a few days, you will be cherished as I share the magic toolbox of yoga and mindfulness with you!

yoga teacher

Almost two decades ago, I took my first yoga class tired and stiff from the corporate 9 to 5, I was hooked on the way I felt -more grounded, happier, stronger, and healthier.​ A journalism major in college and former oriental art PR & publicist, my inquisitive nature gave way to a strong desire for an alternative lifestyle and self-inquiry which turned into a lifelong passion. In past years, I am trained and certified in different disciplines like Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa, Meridian Yin Yoga, Mindfulness, Traditional Chinese Massage and Chair/Senior Yoga.

Words of love

An overall amazing experience! Suryalila is a magical place! I loved that we also learnt how to use balls for self massage and myofascial release. So much gratitude and love to Sakshi for her knowledge and beautiful energy that she has shared with us during these past days! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I. Luna

I started going to yoga a few months ago, I’ve never been before and Sakshi is so helpful and friendly, I never feel judged or like I’m doing anything wrong, and not only do I feel more relaxed and grounded, but a lot of the muscle pain in my neck I have been struggling with has eased, I cannot recommend her highly enough!

M. Kassim

Oh what a great revelation! I could not even imagine the territory that the practice of Yin Yoga has opened up in me! It is the first time in my life that I have achieved such a deep level of connection with my tissues and especially with my internal organs. The work of Sakshi is impeccable!
